ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
ModSecurity comes by default with all cloud web hosting solutions which we offer and it shall be turned on automatically for any domain or subdomain which you add/create within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The firewall has three different modes, so you can switch on and deactivate it with simply a click or set it to detection mode, so it shall maintain a log of all attacks, but it will not do anything to prevent them. The log for each of your sites shall contain in-depth information including the nature of the attack, where it came from, what action was taken by ModSecurity, and so forth. The firewall rules we use are regularly updated and include both commercial ones that we get from a third-party security business and custom ones our system admins add in case that they detect a new sort of attacks. This way, the Internet sites that you host here shall be a lot more protected with no action needed on your end.
ModSecurity in Dedicated Hosting
All of our dedicated servers that are installed with the Hepsia hosting CP include ModSecurity, so any application which you upload or install shall be protected from the very beginning and you'll not have to worry about common attacks or vulnerabilities. A separate section inside Hepsia will allow you to start or stop the firewall for every domain or subdomain, or turn on a detection mode so that it records details about intrusions, but does not take actions to prevent them. What you will see in the logs shall allow you to to secure your sites better - the IP address an attack came from, what website was attacked and how, what ModSecurity rule was triggered, etcetera. With this info, you'll be able to see whether an Internet site needs an update, if you need to block IPs from accessing your hosting server, and so forth. Aside from the third-party commercial security rules for ModSecurity which we use, our administrators include custom ones too every time they come across a new threat which is not yet in the commercial bundle.
